Hurricane Dorian is headed out to sea and the wind and rain along Virginia’s Southeast coast is diminishing, but it has left downed trees and power lines and flooded streets.

 

Dorian is moving out to sea.

 

Jeff Orrock:  Dorian continues to race away from the Carolina Coast

Orrock: Winds have been steadily decreasing across eastern Virginia and most of Hampton Roads

 

He says top winds were around 70 miles an hour along the coast.

 

Orrock:  Rainfall.  Places around Norfolk saw one to two inches of rain, while Virginia Beach picked up three to three and a half inches of rain. Some streets are flooded and high tide is 4:30.

 

Thousands lost power earlier in the day.

 

Jeremy Slayton: Hampton Roads as of 1:30 Friday afternoon has about 41 thousand customers without power

Dominion’s Jeremy Slayton.  It is now 26 thousand or less, and only 147 in  the Richmond area.

Central Virginia was spared most of the impact. 

 

Orrock:  We saw a little precipitation, but not much at all.

 

And he says, sunshine is coming back.
